Relaxing beach paradise
The 1 bedroom unit is very clean and just perfect for a couple. The kitchen is adequate and had all we needed to cook too. The beach is just steps away and is gorgeous and feels private. The small pool is refreshing and shared with 3 other units but rarely used. The best part are the on site hosts/caretakers Luis and Annabell who are gems and able to answer any questions and keep the place spotless!
This was our second year staying at Casa Playa Maya. We rented the larger 1st floor casita this year, so we had more room for my boyfriend's son, who slept on the pull-out couch. We were informed that the main house would be under renovation during our stay and given the option to cancel or stay at a lower rate. We opted to stay because of the wonderful experience we had last summer. We really lucked out too. Renovations hadn't started and we were the only occupants - we had the whole property to ourselves! Luis and Annabelle were extremely hospitable and welcoming, and Wendy was very quick to respond to my questions and request to check in early. Despite a little bit of sea grass, Soliman Bay was pristine and tranquil. We snorkeled everyday and took out the kayaks to explore the reefs in deeper water. Our 11-year old loved the pool too!
We rented a car this year, which gave us freedom to explore the towns of Tulum and Akumal - each is 10 min away. In Akumal Turtle Bay Cafe was our favorite breakfast spot, and their ice cream is out of this world! I craved the Dark Chocolate Habenero and Salted Caramel all year long! We love La Buena Vida for lunch, cocktails, and casual dinner on Half Moon Bay. Plus there are shops across from the restaurant with beautiful pottery and silver jewelry. If you're looking for something more upscale or special, I highly recommend Taverna Akumal - ask for Manny! We also had a fantastic dinner at Casa Maria in Tulum - our dinner was worth every one of the five stars! If you get the chance, check out Chamico's at the south end of Soliman Bay. It's as casual as you can get with seafood caught daily and grilled in an open fire pit on the beach. They offered massages on the beach this year, and I took full advantage of that opportunity! Ahhh-mazing!
If you are looking for water adventure - we spent a day at Xel-Ha. It was more crowded than we would have liked, but our 11-year old loved jumping off the rocks and going down the water slide. There's tons to do, and the price includes all meals, drinks, and snacks. There is also a dive center in Akumal...last year we took a snorkel tour to see the turtles. This year we took an Explore Scuba class, which included a 45-minute dive along the reef. It was terrifying at first, but the most extraordinary experience we've ever had.
We're hoping to convince our friends to bring their families next year, so we can all stay in the newly renovated house - the plans look awesome!!
Always a 5 star experience...
Can not beat the location, sun, snorkeling, paddle boarding, etc. Luis and Annabel are amazing hosts and very accommodating. Highly recommend. We don't stay anywhere else in Tulum. Thank you for another enjoyable stay. Sincerely, Rachel
Fantastic location on a gorgeous beach
The home was small but well supplied. Good for two people. We had three and it was a bit crowded. No TV, which was a good thing. Wi-Fi went out for a day or so while we were here. Beds and shower were very good. We could easily cook a meal with the kitchen facilities but ate out most meals. The beach was great. Kayaks and snorkels were supplied as were beach towels. Pool was ok but we didn’t use it with the sea right there. Luis and Annabel were very helpful. A little isolated but there were two good restaurants within walking distance, one a beach restaurant that got good reviews but we didn’t try. The other is more high end but excellent food and service. Overall, a very relaxing vacation with little stress and all the amenities we wanted.
Didn’t want to leave
We enjoyed this beautiful paradise for 9 days. We got out most mornings to snorkel around the bay. Loved having the equipment necessary which made it super convenient. We used the kayaks and paddle boards a lot too. Condo was comfortable for the 4 of us (myself, Husband and 2 young daughters). The girls slept on a pull out. The only down side was there isn’t anywhere to put you clothes. Just a tiny closet. We managed, but just something to note. We made breakfast and lunch in the kitchen and went into Tulum or down to Jashita Hotel (5-Star hotel) which is a 5 minute walk on the beach for dinner. Luis, the property host/caretaker, was awesome. Gave us great recommendations and always helped arrange transportation. He was truly a fabulous host. We enjoyed meeting him very much. Soliman Bay is gorgeous and was so peaceful and quiet. We practically had the entire beach to ourselves. We didn’t have any negative experience w sargassum until we walked closer to Tulum. There was a lot of sargassum down in Tulum and also in playa del Carmen when we spent a day there. We are happy we ended up in Soliman Bay and didn’t have to worry about the sargassum. This place was a great central location for many activities including: Tulum, Tulum ruins, Xel-Ha & many cenotes. We can’t wait to go back!
We enjoyed a 4 night stay at this property. Luis was very friendly & helpful. My only suggestion would be to book a stay on an upper level. We were on the ground floor and found it quite noisy in the morning & that it lacked privacy. Also, rent a car, it’s off the beaten path.
